On the evening, we will be welcoming Friends from 5 pm, when you can take in the art exhibition which will be in school over the same weekend (3rd to 5th October). From 7pm the Ceilidh will begin, with buffet food and soft drinks provided and dancing until 10 pm. Should you wish a different sort of drink, you are very welcome to bring your own.
The Ceilidh is free, children are very welcome, and we are very much looking forward to dancing with as many Friends as possible!
For the Ceilidh, we would be grateful if anyone can offer the following help:
People to cook vegetable chilli
People to bake chocolate brownies
People to prep potatoes and cheese on the day
People to set up the gym during the day on Saturday
People to clean the gym on Sunday, ready for lessons on Monday.
Donations of disposable bowls and plastic cutlery.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your offers of help
We would also like to offer a warm invitation to join us at our art exhibition, The Balancing Act
, which will take place upstairs at School this Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th October, from 11 am until 4 pm
each day. The exhibition will be family-friendly, with an area for any younger artists to enjoy themselves while you look around, should you need it. The cafe will be open for drinks and nibbles, and disabled access is available.
